Leach Theatre will host a performance of Grammy Award-nominated steel guitar player Rusty Young at Missouri S&T next month.
The performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 4, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall located at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
In the late 1960s, Rusty Young was asked to play steel guitar on the Buffalo Springfield album Last Time Around. While working on the Springfield recording, Rusty, Jimmy Messina, and Richie Furay decided to form a new band they named Poco. The Steel Guitar Hall of Fame inductee, songwriter, and recording artist will perform a solo concert featuring a retrospective of his 50-year music career through songs, stories and photos.
Tickets are $25 for all ages and can be purchased through the Leach Theatre Box Office, located in the vestibule inside the main entrance of Castleman Hall, facing 10th Street. The Leach Theatre Box Office is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets can also be purchased online at leachtheatre.mst.edu.
